- "A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack."—Grand Master Yoda
- Action Girl: Name a female Jedi, and by virtue of being a Jedi, she will be this.
- All There in the Script: A great deal of these Jedi are only named in the movie credits, scripts, and character guides.
- Ascended Extras: The Clone Wars takes the time to turn the background Jedi fully fleshed out characters.
- Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: When they die, Jedi can choose to become one with the Force.
- Badass Army: Their mastery of the Force makes them the most powerful individuals in the galaxy.
- Canon Immigrant: A few Jedi, most notably Aayla Secura and Quinlan Vos, debuted in the Star Wars: Republic comic series before appearing in the films and The Clone Wars. This saved them from being completely wiped from continuity in the 2014 reboot.
- Children Are Innocent: The younglings Vader finds in the Jedi Council chamber during Operation Knightfall, unaware that he's come there to kill them, not rescue them.Sors Bandeam: Master Skywalker, there are too many of them. What are we going to do?
(cue Anakin's lightsaber igniting)
- Combat Clairvoyance: A stock Jedi power is the ability to sense things before they happen, giving them heightened reflexes.
- Cool Starship: The Jedi pilot their own starfighters, which suspiciously resemble Darth Vader's personalized TIE fighter.
- Cool Sword: The lightsaber, a Jedi Knight's signature weapon, which can cut through almost anything and defend against almost any attack. The most common colors are blue and green, though other colors are used (such as purple for Mace Windu).
- Death by Cameo: In Revenge of the Sith, George Lucas' son Jett plays the Jedi Padawan who gets killed fighting clone troopers in front of Bail Organa, while stunt coordinator Nick Gillard plays one of the Jedi Vader kills in the security hologram.
- Despair Event Horizon: It's revealed in Star Wars Rebels that a number of Jedi gave into their fear and despair during the Clone Wars that they lost themselves to the Dark Side.
- Earned Stripes: Humans (and aliens with human like hair) wear rat-tails as padawans. When they are promoted to Jedi Knight the rat-tail is cut off and they're free to wear their hair however they want to. Though we don't see the process in the films themselves, in The Phantom Menace Obi-Wan has the padawan haircut, which Anakin wears in the last scene. By Attack of the Clones, Anakin still has it and Obi-Wan doesn't. And by Revenge of the Sith they've both grown their hair out.
- Easily Forgiven: It's more or less their main philosophy. No matter how heinous your crimes are, if you decide to switch back to the light side, you are allowed to.
- Four-Star Badass: The Jedi really get to demonstrate how badass they are when they're made generals of the Republic Army during the Clone Wars.
- Frontline General: The Jedi in all Clone Wars-related media, such as Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, and the animated series Clone Wars and The Clone Wars. They are all automatically generals, and prefer to command from the frontlines. Probably because they don't fear enemy blaster fire. Pong Krell from The Clone Wars is an exception, preferring to stay in the back. But he has a good reason to do that. He's killing as many clones as possible and using Hollywood Tactics before he officially betrays the Republic.
- Good Cannot Comprehend Evil: The Jedi Order suffers from this problem, and pay dearly for it, as the prequels show.
- Hero with Bad Publicity: Their involvement in the Clone Wars makes their claims as peacekeepers seem hypocritical, which alienates them from the public. Palpatine uses this to his advantage when he provokes them into an assassination attempt.
- He Who Fights Monsters: As the Clone Wars goes on, the Jedi take on a greater and greater role in the Republic's military and become distanced from their role as peacemakers. Yoda in particular is very uncomfortable with the Jedi's role in the war, especially after their failures lead to Anakin Skywalker falling to the Dark Side.
- Humanoid Aliens/Rubber-Forehead Aliens: The Jedi run the gambit with alien members (but not so alien that they can't use a lightsaber), ranging from human actors with body paint such as Aayla Secura and Luminara Unduli, to more elaborate pieces with full masks like Plo Koon and Kit Fisto.
- Infant Immortality: Firmly not in effect during Order 66, and even during The Clone Wars animated series.
- Jedi Mind Trick: The Trope Namer; with a wave of their hand, a Jedi can influence a weak-minded individual's thoughts and actions.
- Kicking Ass in All Her Finery: Some female Jedi (such as Shaak Ti, Luminara, Barris) keep wearing their seemingly-impractical robes while fighting. It doesn't slow them at all.
- Killed Offscreen: The films showcase only a handful of the Jedi's deaths, but considering Luke is deemed the last of the Jedi in Return of the Jedi, it's a safe bet to say that a whole lot of Jedi didn't make it, or as Star Wars Rebels revealed, turned to the Dark Side due to giving into despair.
- Knight Errant: Often act as this, being the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy.
- Last Stand: Obi-Wan and Yoda went for a last stand of the Jedi as a whole when they battled Darth Vader and Darth Sidious after Order 66 wiped out the Jedi. Though Vader is injured, Sidious survives unscathed, rescues his apprentice, and the Jedi are forced into exile with the Sith having won dominance of the galaxy.
- Long Neck: Yarael Poof, a Council member in The Phantom Menace. Word of God says he was written out of the other prequels to avoid confusion with the similarly long-necked Kaminoans.
- Martial Pacifist: Although the Jedi don't hesitate to use violence when necessary, they don't believe in the use of pre-emptive violence and try hard not to kill unless there is no choice.Yoda: A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack.
- Master Swordsman: Some of them, including Yoda, Mace Windu, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan, and Qui-Gon Jinn, are stated to be the greatest lightsaber duelists in the galaxy. Considering receiving a lightsaber marks the transition the first step from Youngling to an active Jedi, it's no wonder why the Jedi take mastering the art of lightsaber combat so seriously.
- Master-Apprentice Chain: Jedi training uses this in consecutive lines of Masters training their Padawans to Knighthood, who then take their own Apprentices. The most significant ones for the Saga are:
- Yoda > Dooku > Qui-Gon > Obi-Wan > Anakin > Ahsoka
- The Five Priestesses > Qui-Gon (as a Force-being) > Obi-Wan and Yoda > Luke > The new Jedi
- Mace Windu > Depa Billaba > Caleb Dume/Kanan > Ezra
- Military Mage: Jedi often act as de facto officers commanding squads of Clonetroopers, and are sometimes also deployed as special forces or elite bodyguards or escorts for VIPs. Jedi Knights who fight with the Republic Army are awarded the rank of General, and even Padawans (apprentices) are automatically awarded the rank of Commander.
- Mind over Matter: The Jedi can use the Force to lift, push, and crush objects.
- Morton's Fork:
- The Order's entire involvement in the war: they either participate to protect the Republic and its citizens as per their duty, risking losing their way and morals, or hold on to their morals and stay out of the war, while Dooku enslaves the galaxy- which of course would also go against their morals.
- This came to its head during the Season 5 finale arc, where they were forced to choose between defending Ahsoka as one of their own or give her up to the Republic courts to maintain their standing with the Senate. They opted for the later, though not without some internal dissent.
- The plot of Dark Disciple is kicked off by the Jedi facing a morally grey decision: they could try to assasinate Dooku as a last resort to end the violence of the Clone Wars, compromising their ideals in the process, or continue being responsible for the deaths and suffering of millions by continuing to conduct the war they had been doing since the beginning.
- National Weapon: Jedi train with lightsabers from a young age, and creation of the first lightsaber is an important rite of passage for Jedi younglings. They also serve as an identifying feature; Anakin, who's lived his life up to that point outside the Republic, recognizes that Qui-Gon as a Jedi from spotting his lightsaber.
- Not-So-Omniscient Council of Bickering: The Jedi Council is an ensemble of the most powerful, most knowledgeable and wisest beings in the Galaxy...yet they continue making very questionable decisions, such as:
- Dismissing Qui-Gon's warning about the return of the Sith, and not giving him reinforcements to protect Queen Amidala, when she decided to return to Naboo and solve the Trade Federation occupation herself. This ended up causing Qui-Gon's death at the hand of Darth Maul, and led to leaving the very emotional Anakin to be trained by the freshly knighted and unprepared Obi-Wan.
- Not realising that the Sith Lord has been sitting right under their noses for decades, until he personally reveals it to one of them.
- Lying to the emotionally unstable Anakin about Obi-Wan's faked death, since they needed his reaction to be genuine.
- Abandoning one of their own, based upon circumstantial evidence that she committed treason, because the Senate put some pressure on them in the matter.
- Doubting Yoda's sanity and putting him under constant surveillance, when he claimed that he had contacted the dead, simply because they were that convinced it's impossible to maintain one's identity beyond death.
- Not Wearing Tights: The Jedi Order is filled with sword-figting superhumans from a variety of worlds that can control the fabric of reality to see the future, move objects with their minds, and perform incredible feats of acrobatics, but Jedi are treated more like Knights, Monks and Generals than superheroes.
- One-Man Army: A single Jedi is all it takes to wipe out entire legions of battle droids.
- Properly Paranoid: They are reluctant to train Anakin as a Jedi on account of him being too old to begin his training, and thus vulnerable to the dark side.
- Psychoactive Powers: A Jedi's lightsaber indeed, any lightsaber reacts to the wielder's emotional state. Having a focused or balanced mind creates a connection to the weapon which makes it lighter and easier to wield.
- The Purge: Order 66, after it's completion the Jedi went from roughly 10,000 to threenote . While it's possible more survived three is the only confirmed number in canon.
- Seers/My Significance Sense Is Tingling: The Force often grants it's users premonitons or even visions of the past, future or far away places. However, the Jedi's ability to do so is severly diminished during the time of the Clone Wars, due to the Dark Side clouding their senses.
- Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: Their weariness to trust Anakin due to his closeness to The Dark Side is a major part of why he turns in the first place.
- The Spock: The Jedi ideal is to escape from emotion and passion to commune with the Force.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Between Attack Of The Clones and Revenge Of The Sith, Tholothian Adi Gallia and Zabrak Eeth Koth are switched out on the Council by two other Jedi of the same species, Stass Allie and Agen Kolar, respectively. You'd have to pay extra close attention to notice, and even then, the characters are so minor in the films it doesn't even change much of anything in the movies (though Gallia has the excuse of being killed off in The Clone Wars).
- Technical Pacifist: They regard themselves as "keepers of the peace" who try to defend life and only kill when necessary. Even when the order is almost defunct, they try to solve problems peacefully rather than rush into battle.
- Vow of Celibacy: The Jedi frown on having strong attachments, and Anakin Skywalker is not able to continue his relationship with Padmé Amidala openly. Although Word of God is that the prequel-era Jedi are allowed to have casual sex.
- Warrior Monk: They combine Western chivalry and swordsmanship with Eastern mysticism and acrobatics.
- What the Hell, Hero?: The Clone Wars often went out of its way to have various characters call the Order, particularly the Council, out for their dubious actions:
- In the Deception arc, they fake Obi-Wan's death so he could thwart Dooku's plan to kidnap Palpatine from within. When Anakin finds out that they deliberately lied to him so his reaction would sell Obi-Wan's death, he calls them out on it.
- Three instances just in the season 5 finale:
- Ventress delivers an indirect one through Anakin, by comparing how the Council abandoned and effectively betrayed Ahsoka to how Dooku did the same to her. Anakin is outright horrified when he realizes she's right.
- Barriss justifies her attack on the Order as a stand against the growing corruption of its principles, claiming that they've become the very menace they are supposed to be fighting. She's right, too, even if none of them realize why.
- While Ahsoka doesn't call them out on it directly after she's been cleared of the charges, her expression speaks volumes of her opinion when the same men praise her strength and resilience who have given her up to the Senate Court as a traitor not long before.
- Obi-Wan delivers another to the Council at the end of Dark Disciple, for ordering Quinlan, a fellow Jedi to assasinate Dooku, claiming that everything that went wrong with the mission was due to the fact, that no matter the intentions, such course of action is clearly of the Dark Side.
- The Window or the Stairs: This is part of Jedi philosophy. The Dark Side is the quick and easy path to power, but it will exact a terrible price from you and everyone you care about in the long run. Unless you're okay with that.

Appears in: The Clone WarsKit Fisto's former Padawan, Nahdar was a Mol Calamari Jedi Knight. The Clone Wars have taken a toll on him, with Nahdar becoming very aggressive and driven by revenge.

- A Father to His Men: Cares greatly for the clones under his command, and is very upset when they're killed.
- The Apprentice: Before the Clone Wars, he was Kit Fisto's Padawan, but his master became too busy with the war to finish his training and be there to watch Nahdar become a Jedi Knight.
- Character Death: He is killed by General Grievous, who uses one of his extra arms to pull out a blaster and shoot Nahdar while their lightsabers were locked together.
- Don't Make Me Destroy You: He says this to Grievous. It doesn't turn out they way he thought it would.

Appears in: Dark DiscipleA Mahran Jedi Knight and friend of Jedi Master Quinlan Vos.
- Character Death: Vos kills him as Desh lies dying from using his stinger. Desh's last thoughts are wondering if Vos' was killing him as a mercy to spare him from a painful death or a cruelty by having his last sight be his best friend killing him.
- Deadpan Snarker: One of the reasons he gets along so well with Vos is because they have the same snarky and playful sense of humor.
- Doomed Homeworld: Mahranee is attacked by the Separatists late in the Clone Wars, with Count Dooku ordering the refugee fleet that escaped the planet to be destroyed and all the remaining Mahran on the world to be shot on sight. Desh is devastated by the fate of his homeworld and death of much of his species, but knows there is very little he can do about the situation.
- Heroic Sacrifice: After Vos falls to the Dark Side and attempts to escape custody along with Dooku, Desh, having been disarmed of his lightsaber, attempts to kill him using his stinger, which will kill both him and whoever he injects.

Appears in: The Clone WarsKalifa is the eldest of three Jedi Younglings who had been kidnapped by Trandoshan sportshunters sometime preceding or during the Clone Wars. By the time the similarly captured Ahsoka arrived on the island they were held, the three of them were losing hope, as their strength was enough only to hide and try to avoid being shot down for as long as possible.
"We are not saviors here. Here, we are survivors."
- Action Girl: Forced to be one, given that she and the other younglings are fighting for their lives.
- Almighty Janitor: Kalifa, technically a youngling, was able to lift and strangle a Trandoshan using the Force. Could be handwaved with the extremely hard fight to survive on the Trandoshan hunting island, which required her to develop faster than usual.
- In the Back: Garnac shot Kalifa in the back after his son died trying to kill her and Ahsoka.
- I Will Only Slow You Down: Kalifa, knowing that she was dying, asks Ahsoka to save herself because she wants Ahsoka to take care of the others.
- Last Request: Kalifa asked Ahsoka to take care of Jinx and O-Mer before dying from the wound caused by Garnac's blaster rifle.
- The Leader: Kalifa was a Type II, calm, level-headed leader. After Ahsoka arrived, she slowly took over the position.
- Power Trio: With O-Mer and Jinx.
- Sacrificial Lion: Kalifa's death served to show, that not even children are safe on the Trandoshan hunting island.
- Shell-Shocked Veteran: Surviving on Wasskah clearly had an effect on all of them, but Kalifa shows it the worst, losing her temper with Ahsoka when recalling the previous Padawans who had been killed, and hatefully attacking a Trandoshan hunter.
- Token Human: Out of the remaining younglings on Wasskah, Kalifa is the only human.
- Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Kalifa strangling a Trandoshan with an expression of intense hatred on her face.
- The World's Expert on Getting Killed: Kalifa's been held on the hunting island for the longest time, and has out-lived Padawan-learners, despite being only youngling herself. She also told the older and better-trained Ahsoka in her face, that she had the experience in surviving the hunt. Naturally she's killed soon after Ahsoka's arrival. Subverted in that, she was expert in avoiding the Trandoshans as much as possible, and she died when they were ambushed while scouting after the Trandoshan's base.

- Almighty Janitor: Jinx can use Jedi Mind Trick, despite being a youngling who had been kidnapped before he was even made a Padawan (granted it took some help from Chewbacca to work). Could be handwaved with the extremely hard fight to survive on the Trandoshan hunting island, which required him and the others to develop faster than usual.
- Deadpan Snarker: Jinx can be very sarcastic at times:Ahsoka: [Chewbacca] says his homeworld is very close.Jinx: That's great, but it might as well be Coruscant as far as I'm concerned. We have no ship.Ahsoka: (translating Chewie's angry growling) He thinks he can contact his home planet, if we find a way to transmit a signal.Jinx: Right, and how would we do that? Send smoke signals?
- The Lancer: He was acting as this to both Kalifa and Ahsoka.

The Gathering Younglings
Byph, Ganodi, Gungi, Katooni, Petro, and Zatt
Voiced by: Olivia Hack (Katooni), Jeff Fischer (Petro), Greg Cipes (Zatt), Georgina Cordova (Ganodi), Dee Bradley Baker (Byph)
Appear in: The Clone WarsThe top students of their class, this group of younglings were introduced when they participated the Gathering, a Rite of Passage, during which they harvested their own lightsaber-crystals. During the rite, they had to face, and overcome their shortcomings and weaknesses. Afterwards they learnt how to built their first lightsabers from Professor Huyang. Their training in the Temple is apparently overseen by Tera Sinube.
- Ambiguously Brown: Petro.
- An Aesop: All the kids have to learn one to get their lightsaber crystals.
- Badass Adorable: They become this during the course of their training.
- Bilingual Dialogue: Gungi and Byph are physiologically incapable of speaking Galactic Basic, but they're perfectly capable of understanding it. So they use their own language to talk to the others (and each other), who are also capable of understanding them.
- The Cameo: They were seen practicing lightsaber-wielding with Tera Sinube in "The Wrong Jedi" during Anakin's duel with Barriss.
- Chekhov's Classroom/Chekhov's Skill: The younglings were shown practicing acrobatic moves in a flashback at the beginning of "The Gathering". In "Bound for Rescue", they use these moves to con their way into a travelling circus, allowing them to sneak into Hondo's base and rescue Ahsoka.
- Children Are Innocent: Exceptionally so. They are so innocent, in fact, that the episodes they appear in are among the most lighthearted ones in the entire series.
- Conscience Makes You Go Back: Petro's decision to come to Katooni's rescue rather than continue trying to find his own crystal.
- Katooni pulls one on Hondo in "A Necessary Bond", convincing him to go back and rescue Ahsoka and the other younglings from Grievous. He does, even though he has nothing to gain from it.
- Cool Mask: They all get one as part of their circus disguises in "Bound for Rescue".
- Cool Sword: All of them, obviously, but Gungi stands out by making a saber with a wood casing where as the rest make regular ones.
- Cowardly Lion: Byph in "The Gathering". He's completely grown out of it as of "Bound for Rescue".
- Cute Little Fangs: Gungi is a Rare Male Example.
- Determinator: Katooni, who scaled a cliff face to get to her lightsaber crystal.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Gungi, due to being a Wookiee.
- In addition, Zatt and Byph are barefoot when outside of their cold weather gear.
- Face Your Fears: Byph had to do this to get his crystal.
- Fish People: Zatt, who's a Nautolan like Kit Fisto.
- Generation Xerox: Petro seems very similar to Anakin in a few ways.
- Hero-Worshipper: Petro has a few moments of this:
- First, after watching Ahsoka taking on Hondo and his pirates, he exclaimed to Zatt and Ganodi who weren't present, that they should have seen her, while wildy imitating lightsaber swinging. Later when the younglings watched Ahsoka dueling Grievous he clenched his fists, and took a typical jittering pose.
- While building his lightsaber, he exclaimed that he'll challenge Obi-Wan to a duel with it. Later when Obi-Wan answered their distress call, he went "The General Kenobi?"
- Human Alien: Katooni, who's a Tholothian just like Adi Gallia.
- Humanoid Aliens: Ganodi and Gungi both have the basic body-structure of a human, but as a Wookiee and a Rodian, they are significantly different from Rubber-Forehead Aliens, Human Aliens, and humans.
- I Surrender, Suckers: Petro lets the pirates take his lightsaber away from him. This is because he assembled it incorrectly and it will explode if activated for more than a second, which he goads the pirates into doing.
- Indy Ploy: Petro spends most of "Bound for Rescue" doing line-of-sight planning, which works out rather well.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Petro.
- Just a Machine: Ganodi's initial thoughts on Huyang.
- Laser Blade: Their quest to build theirs forms the impetus of the plot for their arc.
- Leeroy Jenkins: Petro.
- Morality Pet: Is it too early to say Katooni is one for Hondo?
- Needle in a Stack of Needles: Ganodi winds up in a cave full of crystals and has to trust the Force to find the right one.
- Nice Hat: Katooni's is another Tholothian headdress.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Petro talked his friends into launching a counterattack, despite Ahsoka directly forbidding it, which ultimately achived nothing, except necessiating Ahsoka to put herself in risk, which resulted in her capture.
- Odd Friendship: As of the end of "A Necessary Bond", there are hints that Katooni is beginning to form one with Hondo. Could also count as an Intergenerational Friendship.
- Only Sane Girl: Katooni is usually the voice of reason.
- Out of Focus: Ganodi got the least screen-time and character development of the six younglings, not even joining the rescue party.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: What they've all become as of "A Necessary Bond".
- Rubber-Forehead Aliens: Zatt is Nautolan like Kit Fisto.
- Run or Die: When cornered by Grievous, Ahsoka and the younglings prepared to fight, but in the last second Hondo and Katooni arrived with the Slave-I to extract them. Ahsoka instructed the younglings to run, while she held up Grievous. Once the younglings were safe, Ahsoka too abandoned the fight, knowing that she had no chance of winning.
- Small Name, Big Ego: Petro thinks he can beat Obi-Wan and kill Grevious upon building his lightsaber. Yeah, sure thing, kiddo.
- The So-Called Coward: Byph has to overcome his timid personality in his first episode. In the second, he willingly risks being shot by acting as bait to lure the bad guys into a trap.
- Too Many Mouths: As an Ithorian, Byph has two of them. Downplayed in that it isn't played for horror, and the mouths are on the sides of his head.
- The Unintelligible: Byph and Gungi.
Portrayed by: Jett Lucas
- Ascended Extra: In Attack of the Clones he was the youngling who answered Yoda's question on what happened to the information on Kamino. In Revenge of the Sith, he is the young Jedi who fought off a few troopers only to get shot down in front of Bail Organa, in a very shocking moment.
- Character Death: He is killed by Clone Troopers when Order 66 was issued.
- Infant Immortality: Averted, and unlike some of the younger students, he is shown being killed on-screen.
- Laser Blade: Wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
- Character Death: She is broken after some buzz droids ripped off her head during the Battle of Coruscant.
- Non-Human Sidekick: To Obi-Wan, particularly during the events of Attack of the Clones while assisting him in investigating Kamino and tracking Jango Fett.
- Off with Her Head!: Her dome is ripped off by buzz droids.
- Satellite Character: To Obi-Wan, never receiving as much focus or attention as R2-D2.
- What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Obi-Wan does not really react much to her destruction in Revenge of the Sith despite her having served him for years.

Appears in: The Clone WarsAn ancient lightsaber-architect droid, who has been serving the Jedi Order for well over a millennia, claiming to had taught thousands of generations of Jedi younglings to built their first lightsabers.
"You must trust that the components that form your lightsaber are meant to be together; there is no other way. It is the Force that binds them."
- An Arm and a Leg: Has both primary arms shot off by one of Hondo's pirates, but it's more of an inconvenience than anything. He gets them reattached at the end of "A Necessary Bond".
- Badass Boast:
Huyang: Many years I have been on this ship teaching many a Jedi before you, and I will continue teaching many a Jedi after you. Call me what you want, but inside my memory banks I contain a record of every lightsaber ever made, and the Jedi who fashioned it.
- Gives one to Ganodi when he questions the ability of a droid to teach them about lightsaber construction.
Huyang: How dare you?! I've lived a thousand years on this ship and never lost a fight. I'm not about to start today!
- And another, when one of Hondo's pirates shot off his head:
- Badass Bookworm: Has an extensive knowledge of lightsabers and how they are built.
- Badass Teacher: He not only teaches younglings about building their lightsabers, he also defends them from pirates.
- Deadpan Snarker: One would imagine it comes from having to deal with Jedi children.
- Expy: What if Ollivander was C-3P0?
- Gentleman Snarker: Huyang has the demeanor of a gentlemanly English professor, but he isn't averse to a bit of snarking at his students.
- Lampshade Hanging: When meeting Gungi he points out that Force-sensitive Wookiees are exceptionally rare. The Expanded Universe has a grand total of three, due to a mandate forbidding any additional Wookiee Jedi.
- Losing Your Head: Has his head blown off by space pirates. He finds this highly annoying.
- Multi-Armed Multitasking: His backpack unfolds into an extra pair of arms, which he uses in his work.
- Off with His Head!: His head gets separated from his body, but remains operational. He can even control his body remotely. His head is re-attached in "A Necessary Bond".
- The Professor: But, of course.
- Quintessential British Gentleman: A mechanical version of the trope: He has a High-Class Glass, speaks in a British accent, is polite and soft-spoken to all, and has a metallic mustache on his face.
- Ridiculously Human Robot: Judging by the boast mentioned above, he's rather proud of himself, and doesn't take perceived insults to his task well.
- Time Abyss: He claims to have taught thousands of generations of Jedi Younglings how to build their lightsabers. He mentions that even Yoda had been one of them.
- Who Needs Their Whole Body?: He has his head and arms blown off but his body still manages to kick the ass of some of Hondo's pirates.
Voiced by: Dee Bradley Baker
- Artificial Limb: He has a cybernetic left hand.
- Extra Eyes: As every Parwan he has three eyes.
- Gadgeteer Genius: He applies several upgrades to D-Squad for the Jedi Council in order to help ensure their missions success.
- Herr Doktor: Speaks with a German accent, for some reason.
- Mad Scientist: Downplayed. He's nowhere near as dangerous as Dr. Nuvo Vindi, but he still has shades of this due to his eccentric mannerisms and seems to enjoy the thought of removing M5-BZ's memory core (the droid equivalent of a lobotomy) a little too much.
- Machine Empathy: He shows some concern for the well-being of the droids he modifies, even if when he's removing parts from them.
- No Sense of Personal Space: When describing modifications to the droids he works on, he gets really close to them and puts his hand-tentacles on them in ways that would make most living beings uncomfortable.
- Starfish Aliens: Parwans are some sort of three-eyed-tentacled-humanoid-fungi creatures, and they're floating in the air.
- Heroic Sacrifice: He opens a airlock on the Renown while it is in hyperspace to suck a group of buzz droids out of the ship to save the rest of D-Squad, but was sucked out into space with them.
- Mind Rape: It is glossed over, but M5-BZ essentially undergoes a lobotomy when Dr. Gubacher removes several of his memory data cores to make room for Colonel Gascon to ride in Beezee's dome. Gubacher even notes before the procedure that it is a good thing Beezee will have no memory of the experience, implying that is a pretty horrendous process for a droid to experience.
- What Measure Is a Non-Human?: The Jedi do not raise any protest over Beezee's memory being erased, while they would have outraged had the same thing been done to a flesh-and-blood sentient being.
- Distaff Counterpart: To R2-D2, being the same model as him and a similar personality, except with feminine programing.
- Expy: Of Promoted Fan-built Droid R2-KT, who had already appeared in "Storm Over Ryloth", as the showrunners wanted to avoid the confusion of two units called R2.
- Magnetism Manipulation: Doctor Gubacher upgrades her with a very powerful magnet that pops out of her dome for D-Squad's mission.
- Pink Means Feminine: She has a feminine personality program, so naturally she is painted pink.
- Interesting enough R4, who is of the same make as QT and R2, is also programmed as a female but red instead of pink.
- Shock and Awe: Like R2-D2, she can shoot jolts of electricity out that can disable battle droids.
